§ The Prime Minister
The statement on Bosnia resulting from the London conference on the former Yugoslavia in August 1992 set out a number of provisions to be included in a peace settlement and called upon the parties to resume negotiations. The international conference on the former Yugoslavia, under the co-chairmanship of Lord Owen and Mr. Vance, has since worked tirelessly to establish a peace plan building on these principles. The Bosnian Muslims and Croats have signed all the elements of the peace plan. But the Bosnian Serbs continue to refuse to agree the interim government arrangements and the maps. The United Nations Security Council has now adopted a further resolution setting out extremely tough sanctions which will be imposed on the Serbs if they remain intransigent.
